Chapter 5: Big Dog & The Kitten

by R. Langner

We are pleased to present the fifth chapter in the novel, Forsaken Chains, read aloud by Margaret Jones-Bricker.

In this chapter, Detective McCauley devises his strategy and sets out to interview members of the law firm where Andrew Thornton was a practising solicitor. While he learns much about Thornton’s character, he discovers other tantalizing office intrigue that causes him to add to his suspect list.

I stumbled upon Forsaken Chains and was pleasantly surprised! The story is cleverly written and eloquently read aloud! The characters are well drawn and the story moves along at an interesting and intriguing pace, giving just enough information so that you’ll have to press on! I love mysteries and the first five chapters set the mood, get you hooked and have you begging for more! Looking forward to seeing the rest of this story unfold!
